In one of the conversations, reported by Zee News, Rhea had allegedly spoken to a drug dealer named Gaurav, saying “Incase we speak about hard drugs, I haven’t been doing too much. Tried MDMA once” and goes on to ask “You have MD?”
The conversations have been reportedly retrieved from deleted WhatsApp messages of Rhea.
Similarly, in another conversation, a contact named Miranda in Rhea’s phone informs the actress “Hi Rhea, the stuff is almost over.” Miranda then asks Rhea “Should we take it from Showik’s (Rhea’s brother) friend? But he has just hash & bud.”
The next conversation between Rhea and her friend Jaya Shah, released by Times Now, has some interesting details. Talking to Rhea on November 25, 2019, Jaya advises, “Use 4 drops in tea or water and let him sip it… Give it 30-40 minutes to kick in”. Thank you so much,” Rhea texts Jaya Saha, as Jaya replies to Rhea saying “No problem bro, hope it helps”.
